The Shaft Pallang runs vertically or horizontally through the glans of the penis.

Executed horizontally, it is known as an “Shaft Ampallang”.

Executed vertically, it is called an “Shaft Apadravya”.

The Shaft Apadravya is more common in the Indian tradition, and runs vertically through the frenum, upward through the middle of the glans.

Origins:

The Shaft Apadravya and the Shaft Ampallang have a long history and originated in the Indian subcontinent. It was a sign of masculinity, and it’s said that without a Pallang the man cannot obtain pleasure. The Pallang should be stretched in order to effectively stimulate the woman.

The Pallang figures prominently in the Kamasutra as well.

Piercing procedure:

TheShaft Apadravya is usually exectued in the end of the glans and runs through the urethra (whereas an Shaft Ampallang runs horizontally through the end of the glans). TheShaft Apadravya can be done in one session only.

Here, too, it is recommended that you anesthetize the urethra to minimize the pain.

Stretching:

The Shaft Apadravya should be worn with a thickness of at least 2.0 to 4.0mm, to prevent any tearing.

Initially we pierce with a thickness of 1.6-2.0mm, which can then be stretched according to your preference.

Healing:

Because this piercing runs through the glans and through the urethra, it heals very quickly within 3-4 months.

Genital piercings can take between 2 weeks and 6 months to heal completely, rarely longer. Like other external piercings, in the first three weeks it should be cleaned with ProntoLind spray twice a day, and then coated with ProntoLind gel. It is important to wash your hands before touching the pierced area and the jewelry itself. By caring for the piercing in the correct manner and with the proper materials, you will rarely have to deal with cases of proud flesh.

In the first few days following the procedure, we recommend that you abstain from sexual intercourse, and wear a condom when resuming normal sexual activities.

Using urine helps the wound heal considerably more quickly, therefore we recommend that you urinate frequently.

Stimulation:

The Shaft Apadravya is a very stimulating form of piercing for both the man and the woman. In the case of women it provides a remarkable stimulation of the G-Spot and hence a great deal of pleasure. The balls of the Shaft Apadravya rub against the inside of the vagina and also give women a new kind of sensation. The man, on the other hand, will feel the pleasurable friction along the entire penis and glans, in addition to which the PA will stimulate the urethra, which is delightful in itself.

Unfortunately, a woman will be hard pressed to find an Apadravya wearer given that they are rarely performed.
